Project Veritas releases new undercover footage showing current and former Twitter employees bragging about their ability to censor people, especially those with political opinions they don’t like.
No, you aren’t paranoid. Everything you suspected about Twitter censoring right-wing opinions through “shadow bans” is true.
James O’Keefe of Project Veritas has just dropped a new undercover video which reveals Twitter “shadow banning” and creating algorithms that censor certain ideas.
The first clip features a former Twitter software engineer who explains how/why Twitter “shadow bans” certain users:
Abhinav Vadrevu: “One strategy is to shadow ban so you have ultimate control. The idea of a shadow ban is that you ban someone but they don’t know they’ve been banned, because they keep posting but no one sees their content.”
“So they just think that no one is engaging with their content, when in reality, no one is seeing it. I don’t know if Twitter does this anymore.”
